IN JAPANESE W/ ENGLISH SUBTITLES!!! A business man almost kills a metal fetishist. The fetishist has his revenge by having the businessman slowly turning into a walking junkpile. This movie was critically praised when it was first released in the theaters.
Ever since seeing "Eraserhead" last September, I've been searching tirelessly for another nightmare-trip as hilariously bizarre and perplexing. "Begotten," "Holy Mountain," "El Tupo," "Black Moon" and "Lost Highway" all disappointed me. This though, this hits the spot. This is finally the followup to "Eraserhead" I've been searching for.
Not that "Tetsuo" is quite as good as "Eraserhead." Scenes tend to go on a bit too long, and at times I started to feel like I was watching the same basic scene over and over. But then it picked back up. The ending confrontation, truce, and new mission made for a marvelous wrap-up.
The acting is laugh-out-loud campy, and stop-motion is actually used to great (and again, often hilarious) effect.
It is now on my bucket list to someday watch this while high.
